The silver tower shaped spice container consists of a base, a shaft and a body.The base is rectangular, stepped and circumferentially decorated with petals opening downwards. The shaft is faceted and narrows and widens, in alternation, towards the body.Each of the four facets are decorated with a central fleur-de-lis motif, looking down, like a pendant and framed by extended bands and scrolls. The widening unit is decorated with two opposited leaves with scrolled shapes in the centre attached together horizontally by a band with split ends. The top of the shaft is plain. The body's base is stepped and bears on each of its corners a pendant with a bell.The body is square and consists of four openworked facets, each decorated with a multifoil central opening flower enclosed within a square dotted frame. One of the facets is available for the insertion of spices.The upper corners bear each a flat banner with wavy edges.The roof is divided into a concave base which widens into a stepped platform and a plain obelisque, on top.
